The USA is home to several of the world's most exciting cities, some truly mind-blowing landscapes, a strong sense of regionalism, a trenchant mythology, more history than the country gives itself credit for and, arguably, some of the most approachable natives in the world. The US was fashioned from an incredibly disparate population who, with little in common apart from a desire to choose their own paths to wealth or heaven, rallied around the ennobling ideals of the Declaration of Independence to forge the richest, most inventive and most powerful country on earth.

Glacier Bay National Park

Wed, 20 Sep 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [17]

ENEN A BEHEMOTH LIKE NIEUW AMSTERDAM starts to rock-and-roll in 25-knot winds and ten-foot seas. Landlubbers to the core, both Connie and I awoke during the night from the constant motion but we waited until morning to stick a motion-sickness patch behind ... Read more >

A Cabin in the Woods

Colorado in Bloom

Sat, 15 Jul 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [59]

SELDOM HAVE WE SEEN COLORADO SO VERDANT this late in July. The early monsoon rains seem to have countered recent temperatures in the 90s and there are still pockets of snow on the high peaks of the Rockies.           ... Read more >

Sun, 25 Jun 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [43]

I TOOK HER OUT TO THE BALL GAME. I took her out with the crowd! But we were detoured by Sunday’s Pride Parade—seemed like half of Denver was out in support—and didn’t arrive until the final strains of the “H-O-M-E-ofthe-... Read more >
